FIRE A TICKET TO BURN
Now that should get some innertube traffic for this little site. But let's turn this slightly political as I always do. Does this give you a clue that maybe, just maybe we should be rebuilding our infrastructure instead of wasting billions trying to rebuild another country that basically hates us anyway? Don't get me wrong I'm all for charity when it's necessary but what will the end result be after we've made our mark in the middle east? Do we really think we can impose our brand of democracy on peoples who've never know it? I think not.
The other side of the aisle blathers about spending and debt. I'd just love to have even 1/2 of what they spent over the 8 Bush years, all of which was not paid for with offsetting taxes. Imagine what a trillion dollars could do to the economy if it were invested in the right places. But no their plan is to freeze everything and cut taxes even more. Can you say "depression"? And as far as the Bush tax cuts I don't really care if they keep them or eliminate them on the middle class or not because what difference does it make when you don't have a job anyway? And those cuts only amounted to about $300 to $600 as I recall. We blow more than that on lattes in a year in this country.
I could go on and on. Beaver shots and bank failures later.
